The Minister of State for Media Affairs, Amjad Adaileh, revealed that pharmacies and bakeries will be open tomorrow under conditions set by the government, without the curfew being lifted.

Talking to a local radio station, Adaileh said that the government will allow pharmacies, bakeries and some stores to open tomorrow, but will not allow people to shop "directly"; for fear of overcrowding and direct contact between citizens.

"The curfew will not be lifted tomorrow," Adaileh confirmed.

He indicated that there will be a mechanism that the government will announce today, to provide people with their needs while they are in their homes, through specific means.
